Sega has partnered with Twentieth Century Fox Consumer Products to launch a new first-person video game, Alien: Isolation.
Based on Ridley Scott’s 1979 classic film Alien, the new game has been described as a ‘survival horror experience, capturing the horror and tension evoked by the original movie.’
Developed by Creative Assembly, Alien: Isolation is due for release later this year on Playstation 4, Xbox One, Playstation 3, Xbox 360 and Windows PC.
Set on a decommissioned trading station in the fringes of space, players will find themselves ‘in an atmosphere of constant dread and mortal danger, as a ruthless Xenomorph stalks and kills prey deep in the shadows,’ read a statement from Sega.
Players must scavenge resources and improvise solutions in order to succeed.
Alistair Hope, creative lead at Creative Assembly, said: "In Alien: Isolation, we have taken the series back to the roots of Ridley Scott’s 1979 movie, the original survivor horror.
"Our Alien is a truly terrifying creature, as intelligent as he is hostile, relentless, brutal and unstoppable. This is the Alien game fans of the series have always wanted."
Jeffery Godsick, president of Twentieth Century Fox Consumer Products, added: "Creative Assemble has created a truly incredible gaming experience, capturing perfectly the very core of what has made the Alien franchise remain relevant after 35 years.
"This partnership has led to the creation of a game that is simply outstanding and sets the tone for what is to come this year for the 35th anniversary of Alien."
Twentieth Century Fox will be honouring the the milestone 35th anniversary of the film with a yearlong celebration marking the beginnings of the Alien legacy by releasing commemorative and fan-favourite products.
